826NYC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around our belief that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this in mind we provide drop-in tutoring, field trips, after-school workshops, in-schools tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications. All of our free programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
826NYC hosts after-school tutoring at the Williamsburg Library Monday through Thursday from 3:00pm-5:30pm. Because it is a homework-help program, you will sometimes get to flex your math and science skills, as well as your writing muscles. Tutoring also offers the chance to commit to a consistent day each week and get to know a bunch of awesome students and volunteers.
